RedHat Problem mounting SAMBA please help

I am trying to mount SAMBA/CIFS and it just won't work
Here are my settings...please let me know what i did wrong
This is Centos 6.4 box
Thanks!


cat /etc/samba/smb.conf
Code:
[samba]
    comment = Samba
        path = /home/vm1/Desktop/samba
        writable = yes
        public = yes

findsmb
Code:
                               *=DMB
                                +=LMB
IP ADDR         NETBIOS NAME     WORKGROUP/OS/VERSION 
---------------------------------------------------------------------
192.168.1.34    VM1            [MYGROUP] [Unix] [Samba 3.6.9-151.el6]


mount -v -t cifs -o username=BUSARI,password=dadon4u //home/vm1/Desktop/samba /home/vm1/Desktop/samba-mount
Code:
mount.cifs kernel mount options: ip=67.63.55.3,unc=\\home\vm1,,ver=1,user=BUSARI,prefixpath=Desktop/samba,pass=********

and then it hangs!!!

i have to press ctrl+c to cancel it and nothing gets mounted
now i went to dmesg

dmesg | tail
Code:
ISO 9660 Extensions: Microsoft Joliet Level 3
ISO 9660 Extensions: RRIP_1991A
SELinux: initialized (dev sr0, type iso9660), uses genfs_contexts
Registering the dns_resolver key type
Slow work thread pool: Starting up

CIFS VFS: Error connecting to socket. Aborting operation
CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -512
CIFS VFS: Error connecting to socket. Aborting operation
CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -113

ofcourse ports for Samba and Samba Client are both turned on in system-config-firewall

Also

service smb status
Code:
smbd (pid  2039) is running...

service nmb status
Code:
nmbd (pid  2031) is running...


What am i doing wrong here?

What jumps to my eyes is the ip address in the mount command. To me it would mean that there's at least two routers and the WAN between your client and your server. That does not have to be an error, but it may make things difficult.
Do you see the server/port from your client?
Do you have an explanation for error codes -512 and -113?
